You can make a couple gallons of it at a time with a couple pounds of lard. It's fantastic stuff. Strips out grease and tree resin and all kinds of junk. Before this we used vinegar and baking soda, which did a fair enough job but it didn't really remove grease.

But for regular "I wore this a couple of times" type wash, it works well.
